Lemon Kush may be a couple of different strains with distinct genetics. Though, you’re sure to get a musky sweet lemon aroma from each of them. Mostly indica-dominant, this balanced hybrid is the perfect way to relax.
A few different strains go by the name Lemon Kush, including the popular Lemon Kush Headband. The most famous is a mix of Master Kush and Lemon Joy. However, another hybrid may include mixes of Afghan Kush and Lemon G. Both of these versions are Indica-dominant, but they provide ample Sativa effects. Expect a fairly balanced mix of a heavy-bodied physical high with a calm, elevated mood.
There is at least one variety of this strain that has Sativa-dominance, but the exact lineage is a mystery. You’re more likely to run into the Indica hybrids listed above. Though the common Lemon Kush strains may be Indica-dominant, don’t expect significant couch-lock from this strain. This variety creates a relaxed, easygoing vibe that’s perfect for a slow afternoon.
From the first sniff, this strain leaves a lasting impression on marijuana consumers. A heady combo of the signature kush aroma and notes of smooth lemon, the combination of which is almost soothing to some marijuana connoisseurs. The distinctive aroma is mirrored in this strain’s flavor — citrus and lemon meld with earthy, spicy flavors that lacks some of the ammonia or diesel flavors of other lemon-centric marijuana strains.
While this strain has smaller than average buds, cannabis consumers should worry — the thick coating of trichomes pack enough of a punch to make up for any size deficiencies. That thick frosting makes for some tough weed to break up, cannabis fans will want to keep their grinder close to hand.
Heady, lemon aroma and flavors aside, medical marijuana patients cherish this strain for the relief it offers from a number of ailments and conditions.
